The Beauty Blogger Awards started in 2012 and I love following them. I entered this year but unfortunately did not make the cut but these #BloggerBabes did!

I think this contest is a great way to support fellow bloggers & learn about some awesome new blogs to follow.

This week was challenge #1: Beauty Shopping Spree

“We gave each blogger $50 to spend anywhere on beauty products. They tell us what steals and splurges made the cut.”

Nails – I Need a Refresh-Mint

So I’m finally getting around to trying some of the new nail polishes I’ve received.

For this weeks manicure I am using Wet n Wild MegaLast in I Need a Refresh-Mint. At first glance I was a little iffy about the shade of blue’ish mint green in the bottle but I decided to give it a shot and OMG what a color!!!! The formula is top-notch & I can always appreciate polishes that don’t chip easily. The color is very pigmented and I really only needed 1 coat to cover the whole nail but added the 2 for that extra POP. Besides loving the actually shade of this polish, I really love the shape of the brush which Wet n Wild calls their Manicure pro brush. These retail for under $2. That price is a steal for the quality.
